Trans-humanism as an Anthropological Problem

Trans-humanism as an Anthropological Problem

April, 19
What is the individual? From the scientific point of view, the individual is a material object – body. In Christian anthropology the individual is a created being, he is a material object – body, and he is a person – subject, transcending the material world of objects at the same time. Philosophy gives different definitions of individual but in the mid-twentieth century the rejection of the human being, as a subject and as an existing being, was openly proclaimed for the first time by structuralism – the founder of trans-humanism. The aim of the philosophical concept of trans-humanism is to liberate the human race from the inherent biological limitations. Modern scientific and technological progress with its opportunity to reformat the human nature almost reached this concept. In more detail

Through the Eye of a Needle: Wealth, the Fall of Rome, and the Making of Christianity in the West, 350-550 AD

Through the Eye of a Needle: Wealth, the Fall of Rome, and the Making of Christianity in the West, 350-550 AD

December, 24
Jesus taught his followers that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. Yet by the fall of Rome, the church was becoming rich beyond measure. Through the Eye of a Needle is a sweeping intellectual and social history of the vexing problem of wealth in Christianity in the waning days of the Roman Empire, written by the world's foremost scholar of late antiquity. Peter Brown examines the rise of the church through the lens of money and the challenges it posed to an institution that espoused the virtue of poverty and called avarice the root of all evil.

Иисус учил своих последователей, что легче верблюду пройти через игольное ушко, нежели богатому войти в Царство Небесное. Тем не менее, ко времени падения Рима, Церковь стала богатой сверх меры. «Сквозь Игольное Ушко» - это  развернутая интеллектуальная и социальная история неприятной темы наличия богатства в христианстве в последние дни существования Римской империи, написанная сообществом ученых поздней античности. Питер Браун рассматривает возрастание Церкви через призму денег и тех вызовов, которые они бросили Церкви, поддерживающей добродетель нестяжания и называющей алчность корнем всех зол.   In more detail

Eastern Christianity: A Crossroads of Cultures (Florence Jullien, ed.)

Eastern Christianity: A Crossroads of Cultures (Florence Jullien, ed.)

November, 30
Eastern Christianity is pluralistic. How might exchanges among Christians in geographic areas where different expressions of Christianity developed in the ancient Near and Middle East have been determining factors in the evolution of specific Churches? Encounters among Christians during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages resulted in fertile adaptations and enrichments leading, through mutations and cross-influences, to the emergence of new identities. Such interculturality provides a response to the challenges of the dominating Byzantine, Persian, and Arabic cultures, as expressed through intellectual currents, artistic influences, and constructions of traditions.  In more detail

The Death of Scripture and the Rise of Biblical Studies

The Death of Scripture and the Rise of Biblical Studies

November, 13
The Bible has always been a contested legacy. Form late antiquity to the Refomation, debates about the Bible took place at the center of manifold movements that defined Western civilization. In the eigtheenth century, Europe's scriptural inheritance surfaced once again at a critical moment. During the Enlightenment, scholars guided by a new vision of a post-theological age did not simply investigate the Bible, they remade it. In place of the familiar scriptural Bibles that belonged to Christian and Jewish communities, they created a new form: the academic Bible. In this book, Michael Legaspi examines the creation of the academic Bible. Beginning with the fragmentation of biblical interpretation in the centuries after the Reformation, Legaspi shows how the weakening of scriptural authority in the Western churches altered the role of biblical interpretation.

Orthodox Readings of Aquinas

Orthodox Readings of Aquinas

November, 1
This book is the first exploration of the remarkable odyssey of Thomas Aquinas in the Orthodox Christian world, from the Byzantine to the modern era. Aquinas was received with astonishing enthusiasm across the Byzantine theological spectrum. By contrast, modern Orthodox readings of Aquinas have been resoundingly negative, routinely presenting Aquinas as the archetype of as a specifically Western form of theology against which the Orthodox East must set its face. Basing itself primarily on a close study of the Byzantine reception of Thomas, this study rejects such hackneyed dichotomies, arguing instead for a properly catholic or universal construal of Orthodoxy – one in which Thomas might once again find a place.

The death of a person in patristic tradition: metaphysical, spiritual and moral aspects

The death of a person in patristic tradition: metaphysical, spiritual and moral aspects
